    Default Cormier: UFC 166's Roy Nelson 'is the most dangerous guy I've ever fought'

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/8/8/460...ht-houston-mma

    His words on "The MMA Hour:"

    "Roy Nelson is the most dangerous guy I've ever fought my entire career. He can knock me out with one punch. I'm fully aware of that. They (Silva, Mir and Barnett) don't have that one-punch knockout power. Those guys weren't going to just knock me out. Barnett and Mir could have caught me with a submission. But I knew going into those fights that I could stay out of those positions. With Mir, I knew I could just keep him standing. With Barnett, I know how to grapple; I've been grappling my entire life, so I knew I could stay out of submissions. But Roy, man, it takes one punch. And it's not even just his overhand right. He's got a nasty uppercut, nice left hook, he's a good grappler, he can take me down, get on top of me and crucifix me and elbow me like he did everyone on The Ultimate Fighter. There is so many ways I can lose to Roy Nelson that my focus needs to be completely on him."

    "DC" also revealed that from now until his battle against Nelson, he won't talk about Jones.

    I can see how Roy is his most dangerous fight of the three. Stylistically, he's a tough matchup. Roy has good grappling, crazy power, and an odd knack for finding people's chins. That said, I think the correction is:

    Cormier: UFC 166's Roy Nelson 'is the most dangerous first round I've ever fought'

    So.. Nelson's grappling is a threat to him but Mir and Barnett's weren't? Pre-fight hype is retarded sometimes.
